Steven Spielberg didn’t win the Oscar

Steven Spielberg expected to be a big winner at the 1976 Academy Awards. TVTV was in the room documenting his reaction when he got the news that, despite dominating the box office that year with Jaws, he was not nominated for Best Director.

Spielberg’s movies have made more than $8.5 billion at the box office worldwide, but his only Academy Awards for Directing so far were for 1993’s Schindler’s List and Saving Private Ryan (1998).

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest ended up winning both Best Picture and Best Director in 1976.
